The threefold hardship: earthquake, tsunami, radiation going down in Japan right now is overwhelming. We've teamed with our dear friend and shop Maker Shinobu Sering to put together an event this upcoming Friday in hopes of raising some relief funds to send over. Shinobu and her friends will be cooking up delicious homemade Japanese comfort food and serving it, casual style, from 6:00 to 9:00 pm. The menu will include:
- Hearty Japanese country soup: daikon, carrot, green onion, yam cake, burdock, deep fried tofu, with meat or without meat
- Japanese paella: steamed rice cooked with vegetables and either tofu and chicken or an assortment of mushrooms
- Japanese pickles
We are asking a $15 sliding scale donation at the door. Prepared by children sweet things and adults-only beverages will also be on hand and for sale. All proceeds from the evening will go to the Northern Japan Earthquake Relief Fund set up by the Japanese Cultural and Community Center of Northern California. That includes all proceeds from G&G items purchased during party hours. Please come big, and please give big.
